Author Info
Hans Christian Andersen
Hans Christian Andersen is best known for his fairy tales, although he also wrote plays, novels, travel books, and an autobiography. Born and raised in Odense, an island off the coast of Denmark, he was the only child of a shoemaker and a washerwoman. Many of the characters found in Andersen's fairy tales contain the traits of their author--for example, like the swan in "The Ugly Duckling" Andersen was picked on before he was "transformed" into a successful writer. Andersen's stories have been translated into more languages than any other book except the Bible.
From the Publisher
Annotation Andersen, unlike the Brothers Grimm who merely collected folklore, adopted the most ancient literary forms of the fairy and folk tale and created a genre that was uniquely his own. This new translation scrupulously follows the text and the order of the original 1874 Danish edition.
Editors Note Translated by Erik Hougaard, this is the only version available in trade paperback that presents the fairy tales exactly as Andersen collected them in the original Danish edition in 1874.  His notes accompany the text.
